Can I build canvas or model driven apps from azure database?

Do I have to use CDS to build a canvas or model driven app?  Can I connect to azure database instead?  Thanks

Hello @UC3378 It is as per your requirement, you can use SQL Azure database as SQL Connection in your Canvas App. 


If you want to use Model driven app, you need to stick with the CDS database (Or we say CDS Entities)
